Hit-And-Run Driver Kills Five-Year-Old Girl
A five-year-old girl was struck by a car on Monday night in the Lawndale neighborhood of Chicago and later died from her injuries. The driver of the car kept going and has not been found yet.
Monet Robinson, 5, was playing with friends and wanted to follow her older sister to join other children on the 1500 block of South Millard Avenue around 8 p.m. Her sister told the girl to stay back but she stepped out into the street just as a green four-door Pontiac Trans Am was traveling down the street.
Witnesses reported Monet being struck by the car and her body flying towards the fire hydrant. The driver of the car reportedly looked out his window and sped away. Monet was taken to Mt. Sinai Hospital where she was pronounced dead. Police do not have a description of the driver but they are looking for a green Trans Am that has sustained damage to the front-end.
